Can't agree with you more, feel ya on that one.

Did you ever see the Village Idiots (Dead cover band) at JD Crackers on Wed's? That gig, along with the food were two of the best things around.

I am particularly fond of Pa. I have and always will called Pa home and I am proud to do so. I couldn't have ask for a better show location or time of year. Happy Valley is BEAUTIFUL any time let alone in the fall which happens to also be harvest season. And there is NOTHING like some good mountain grown Indica.....except puffin organic mountain grown Indica in the mountains while standing in front of a stage with none other than the boys and 20 or so of my closest friends. Yeah sounds like a damn good time if I must say so.

It's also interesting how leaving a place shapes your take on it as well. I always loved the Bay Area, having grown up there in the 50s-70s, and then left in the late 70s, but what I noticed is that the folks that stayed, whom I would visit in the 80s, 90s, thru today, have very much more "soured" on it...whenever I come back I love it, but all they do is complain about the traffic (I can see their point), crime, changes in music scene, etc., etc.

Yeah I hear the same thing when I talk to folks back home..."it's sooo boring here" then when I ask what they've been up too, "oh well three weeks ago we had a big camping party about thirty people showed up and we banged on drums all night, then two weeks ago we went up to NY to see DTB then last weekend we had a harvest party then next weekend...." Yeah I remember that as being REAL boring....two weeks ago I sat and dreampt about being in Pa at a ragin drum circle then last weekend I dreampt of being in NY under the stars at a DTB show.....

I'm a Pennsylvania lifer myself, and I love the harvest time in this Commonwealth. I'm also a PSU grad and I'm looking forward to the fun on the 13th. Are you going?

Hey PATourKid! I too am from PA! I like it. very quiet and colorful with the leaves changing and all. It's not for everyone that's for sure. You must enjoy complete solitude at times...LOL hey, the fishing isn't bad either! LOL I live Near Williamsport and Lock Haven. In between them. So it won't be too hard getting to the show!

As WC Fields would say, "I spent a month one night in Erie" (I did...it wasn't that bad...maybe a week's worth).

I too have a connection to the keystone state. I spent about six years of my childhood in Womelsdorf a town about 20 miles west of Reading and only about 40 minutes from fantastic Hershey Park!

you sound pretty serious about fishing... do you give tours? maybe you could get together with hucker and offer a salt water-fresh water 1-2 punch --

WOW!!! I puffed MUCHO herb on that bridge in the day!! Yeah Tidioute is about 25 miles south of that bridge sits RIGHT on the Allegheny River I spent a LOT of time in the ANF, that was always my back yard. I have a TON of friends from Warren Man I miss that place. And yeah the fishing is OUTSTANDING!! Pristine streams and of course the beautiful river. I really enjoy the Steelhead fishing up Erie way. I went to a gathering down in Ridgeway years ago and had a blast. That whole area surrounding the ANF is as pretty as it gets. My younger brother just placed second in the Penn State fishing tournament ( which is held in Tidioute) Man talkin about it makes me JONES to go home!!!!
